On a blue field appears the state seal. In the center of the seal is a beehive, the state emblem, with a sego lily growing on either side. The sego lily stands for peace. The state motto, “Industry” means steady effort. The date 1847 represents the year that Brigham Young led the Mormons to Salt Lake Valley. The date 1896 represents the year that Utah gained admission to the Union of the United States.
